AIT Worldwide Logistics joins Smart Freight Centre community
Membership in nonprofit organization to accelerate decarbonization journey in collaboration with fellow logistics, shipping companies.
As part of the company’s evolving sustainability commitments, AIT Worldwide Logistics became a Smart Freight Centre (SFC) member.
SFC is an international nonprofit focused on reducing the emissions impacts of global freight transportation. The organization provides a forum for collaboration among top companies in the logistics industry. Members in the SFC community work together by consolidating existing knowledge and developing new approaches to foster emissions reductions throughout the global supply chain.
According to AIT’s chief information officer and executive vice president, Ray Fennelly, partnerships developed within the SFC will help strengthen efforts to achieve the company’s goal of net-zero emissions by 2035.
"Sharing our existing knowledge and supporting the industry as a whole is an important aspect of our company’s sustainability strategy," Fennelly said. “Joining the SFC community is a natural next step as the firm’s environmental initiatives continue to mature.”
As a result of becoming an SFC member, AIT is now participating in the Global Logistics Emissions Council, Clean Cargo, and Clean Air Transport programs.
In 2023, AIT expanded its supply chain solutions to help customers avoid emissions as efficiently and cost effectively as possible. For example, in its most recent sustainability report, the company included updates on pilot programs involving sustainable aviation fuel and electric delivery vehicles in multiple locations on three continents.
AIT also became a signatory of The Climate Pledge in 2022, joining more than 400 other companies around the world in an agreement to measure and report greenhouse gas emissions, implement decarbonization strategies, and neutralize remaining emissions with credible offsets.
